The Italian Bridge (ponte in Italian) is an innovative course that creates a new path for students who are taking Italian 101 in the spring semester, and wish to have the necessary preparation to take Intermediate Italian (Italian 201) the following fall semester. 

Students will build the skills necessary to understand, speak and write Italian at the advanced-beginner level, learn about contemporary Italian society, and develop the competence, interest, and enthusiasm for the language that will inspire them to proceed to more advanced levels.
